The Atlanta Braves starting rotation is going to get creative in their series against the Washington Nationals starting tonight at Suntrust Park. With Max Fried going on the Injured List with a blister on his throwing hand and Mike Foltynewicz still working in the minors, the Braves have two rotational spots to fill.

MLB Braves' beat reporter sent a tweet this morning saying Kyle Wright may be called up to pitch tonight:

"I think there's a great chance that we do see Kyle Wright start tonight," 92.9 The Game's Braves reporter Joe Patrick said. "It's an interesting prospect because we haven't seen him since early this season."

In his last five starts for Gwinnett, Wright has posted a 1.99 ERA, 23 H (4 HR), 37 K, 8 BB with a 4-0 record.

"Recently, he's been picking up his form...he's looking good and hopefully he can carry that form in with the major leagues."
